The Morrinsville Art Gallery Charitable Trust is the leading art gallery in the Matamata-Piako District. We work to create a vibrant environment for all locals and visitors to Morrinsville and the Mighty Waikato Region. As a charitable trust run by one staff member and thirty-three volunteers, we create many opportunities for our community to connect within an art context.  

We are committed to supporting local and national artists. With a diverse programme of exhibitions and events, we aim to inspire and engage our community with the transformative power of art. 

A free to visit gallery situated in the Waikato, the Morrinsville Gallery is celebrating over 14 years as an arts venue showcasing New Zealand art from local, national and international communities across three exhibition spaces.

Morrinsville is a vibrant and creative hub for art and culture in Waikato, and we are immensely proud to be part of it.

The gallery relies solely on grants, sponsorships, endowment interests, retail and admissions by donation to meet its operational costs.
We are greatly indebted to The Arts House Trust, who has pledged the rights to exhibit artworks in Morrinsville from a truly comprehensive collection of contemporary New Zealand art. The largest of the three exhibition spaces exhibits works from this collection on a rotational basis, changing approximately five times a year.

The gallery welcomes proposals from artists and groups for the remaining spaces, one of which is designated for local artists, schools and community groups. Through a lease agreement, the gallery is situated in a building that was once the Post Office on Morrinsville’s main street and as well as an exhibition space, the venue is available for music recitals, public gatherings and private functions.

Morrinsville Gallery is governed by the Morrinsville Art Gallery Charitable Trust which was formed in 2006 with the vision to establish a public art gallery to enhance the cultural life of the region. Governance is undertaken by the Board of Trustees and the gallery is managed by the Director, who reports to the Trust Board.

Special Features of the Gallery

The gallery has a beautiful bespoke front desk made by sculptor Adrian Worsley containing unique recycled objects to surprise and delight. Adrian also made the bench seats and the entry doors to the Arts House Trust Gallery which are cleverly crafted from the radiators that once heated the old Post Office.
Adrian works from his studio/workshop in Te Aroha where he designs and constructs unique and original sculptures entirely from recycled materials with clever blending of materials to an immaculate finish.
